  • Sustain Pedals?

    Hey guys, I don't usually come over to this forum, but I got a question

    Are all sustain pedals basically the same thing? Will any sustain pedal work on any keyboard? Looking to get a sustain pedal. The keyboard I have uses those 1/4" jacks for sustain.

    Any lower-priced recommendations?

    different pedals different polarity

    some keyboards, u can set the polarity within the UI

    some keyboards, u can set the polarity by stepping the pedal, while switching the keyboard on

    so , which keyboard are u using?

      It's just some lower budget keyboard I borrowed from my cousin. It's the Yamaha YPT-200

      What kinda sustain pedal would I need? Maybe just look for a Yamaha one?

        according to the manual

        "The sustain function lets you produce a natural sustain
        as you play by pressing an optional footswitch. Plug
        the Yamaha FC4 or FC5 footswitch into this jack and
        use it to switch sustain on and off."


        -edit-

        oh the manual also says u can step the pedal while switching the keyboard on to reverse the polarity. so I guess u can use any pedals (though no guarantees from me)
